So sue me. Yackety Yak from both sides on unions. As usual libs are pro, conservatives are anti. World is coming apart, I'm heading to Mexico, and you fuckers get into a pissing contest about unions.

Once again, truth and the middle ground comes to rescue the partisan forumite hoards;

For corporations, unions are simply a part of the cost of doing business.

For corporations, taxes are simply a part of the cost of doing business.

For corporations, employee health insurance is simply a part of the cost of doing business. (Where offered.)

For corporations, matching FICA payments is simply a part of the cost of doing business.

For corporations, unemployment insurance is simply a part of the cost of doing business.

All true? Are we agreed?

Good.

Lesson number one in a global economy; Capital (money) flows, or moves to where it can most effectively be put to use and get the largest return on investment. When capital is diminished by entitlements and the regulatory environment to the point where corporations are no longer competitive in the marketplace, it will simply move to where it is under less pressure and can be used more profitably.

Lesson number two; People (and jobs) cannot move as easily as capital.

all not true.
wrong place for post.
why bother with a parting shot anyway.

corps don't pay taxes (figured in roi) - only people.
